After watching the wonderful Tree Change Dolls video in which grubby old dolls get changed into pretty little girl dolls, I thought I’d have a bash at it myself. And although my one was no way near as good as theirs, I did have loads of fun, and now my daughter has a much more appropriate looking doll to play with. I always thought these old dolls looked very over sexualised.
All I did was to remove the existing features using nail varnish remover, and then painted on a new face. Tree Change Dolls uses acrylic paint I think, but I didn’t have any so I just used my own nail varnish (of which I have every colour under the sun!)
What is really funny is that the new doll has been re-named Lily, and seems to have developed a new personality. Now apparently Lily is in charge because she is ‘prettier’! Ha!ha!
I’ll have to give her ugly sister a make-under too…
